Stories from a life in progress.

Perspective wins

Now, this is better.

Last time I checked on my reading-the-whole-Bible progress, I was disappointed, because it felt like I hadn't really gotten anywhere.

Lo and behold, by just keeping-on reading, I'm getting somewhere.

I'm still fighting with outdated expectations for the summer. I'm not reading about or writing about what I thought I would, two months ago. But I am reading and writing, and that's not nothing. That's everything. That's how getting-somewhere happens.

I still need to hear that lesson. So I'm still making myself see it, making myself say it out loud.
